Neudata Names Lewis To Key North American Sales Role

Jun 28 2017 | 8:14pm ET

Alternative data specialist Neudata has named former RavenPack sales executive Hagen Lewis as director for North America.

In his new role, Lewis will expand the U.S. nationwide marketplace for the Neudata’s alternative data intelligence platform by working closely with systematic, quantitative and other professional fund managers, the company said. He will be based in New York. 

Prior to joining Neudata, Lewis was a top performing senior sales representative at news analytics provider RavenPack. Beforehand, he held senior sales positions at Liquid Holdings, Fidessa, Knight Capital and Instinet. 

The appointment comes two months after Neudata named former Twitter global head of financial data partnerships Stephen Morse as an advisor for the U.S. market, also based out of New York. 

“Hagen is a proven FinTech professional and a true gem to add to our expanding talent lineup,” said Rado Lipuš, founder and CEO of Neudata, “He fully appreciates the consultative relationships we continue to forge with institutional managers who find tremendous value in leveraging the unconventional, and often under-radar, alternative datasets covered on the Neudata platform.” 

Founded in 2016, London-based Neudata helps sophisticated investment managers find, evaluate and select new and alternative data sources that can provide unique, timely and granular records of often imperceptible economic activity. The company’s expertise lies in uncovering unique datasets from non-conventional sources that are not available on established and commonly used data platforms.
